The Trojan HorseSearching for a murderer, a journalist uncovers a conspiracy that could change the power balance of the entire world.
London. Journalist Helen Madigan is investigating the murder of a computer specialist who developed a ghost program intended to manipulate elections. She, too, is soon pursued by cold-blooded killers who seem to be working for an alliance of secret services. Strangely, the ghost program contains within it the name of Tom McLaughlin, the last Canadian Prime Minister before Canada's fusion with the United States. With U.S. President Stanfield intent on invading Saudi Arabia for its oil, McLaughlin runs for the U.S. presidency as a peace candidate. Fearing that the CIA is planning to rig the next elections, Helen meets with McLaughlin to warn him, but realizes that he, and not the U.S. government, is behind the ghost program. And that he is the flesh-and-blood "Trojan Horse" that is about to take over the White House with the backing of various European secret services...
